New measures to protect Intellectual Property

Posted at July 17, 2015 | By : | Categories : News | 0 Comment

 

Under new government proposals, UK designers will no longer have to include a design number on products to be confident they can recover damages for infringement.

 

The proposed measures will enable designers to mark their products with a web link, instead of having to stamp the product or attach a label with the registered design numbers. The web link would notify third parties of the relevant registered design rights and keep information up-to-date as Intellectual Property rights change.

 

Making a false claim that a design is registered can result in a fine, so this proposed change should simplify the system for design owners and users.
